Rising Up: The History and Culture of Protest in France

During the summer, I studied abroad for one month in Rennes, France, doing a CIEE HS Abroad French Language and Culture Intensive. This school year, I completed a French independent project that examined the history and culture of protests, strikes, and revolutions in France. I was already interested in learning about French culture and improving my proficiency in French, and this experience helped me accomplish those two goals, but now, it's inspired me to broaden my horizons!

I also have a deeper appreciation for cultural diversity and a better understanding of why it's so important to be exposed to various cultures. Christina Liang ’20
